Data challenges in the logistics industry

How are you transforming your huge volume of your data as a logistics provider when you manage huge flows of products? Tough question, ain’t it? When you’re dealing with products’ origin, size, weight, destination, content etc you have to track it all to go through with your logistics affairs. But have you ever thought on how you can improve your operation efficiency knowing exactly what data to use?

This is certainly not an exclusive challenge for you, so knowing how to make use of good quality data can put you ahead of competition, enhancing some processes like: supply chain risk management, service level improvement, product innovation, customer loyalty management, resource capacity planning(strategic and operational) and last mile optimization. But the complexity of capturing, storing, searching, analysing and visualizing big data is what may be hindering you data-driven goals.

Problems when using different solutions

As the amount of information you receive increases exponentially, it’s in your best interest to deal with a data warehouse and analytical database that won’t have inconsistency when cleaning, integrating or transforming your data. Real-time streaming data is also one of the most important characteristics for logistics, where a small delay can mean large losses.

Logistics organizations seeking data warehousing solutions need to store both time series and non-time series data. They need such data to be streamed,analyzed and visualized in real-time. It might sound simple but to achieve this you need to integrate many separate tools, which have their own expertise requirements. You would get disappointed by how much this costs to deploy and maintain. Not to mention the fact you’d be wasting your time solving problems like server configuring, tuning, management, scalability and instabilities rather than worrying about getting access to reports and more accurate insights.
